B2 — Deflationary Economy with Token Burn

B2 — Deflationary Economy with Token Burn - In case you missed it, the mainnet launch is projected to take place in April this year. This means there is still time for tweaking and experimenting on B2 Testnet. — $MATTER Burn🔥. — As many of you might’ve already noticed, the gas fees on B2 are being consistently burned, a similar mechanism to what we see on the Ethereum mainnet with the addition of EIP-1559 to the protocol. The burning of $MATTER leads to a reduction of the supply, thus increasing the scarcity and value of the remaining tokens. Over the next few months, until the mainnet launch in April, the focus will be on further refining and testing this contraction economy experiment. We are looking to build applications that encourage $MATTER burn and modify existing applications to do the same. The goal is to ensure that the network is ready for launch and that users can start taking advantage of the benefits of $MATTER burn. Finally, by encouraging the creation of new and innovative applications that are related to burning $MATTER, the network will become more dynamic and versatile, leading to greater adoption and usage. This, in turn, will help to increase efficiency and reduce congestion as the network continues to grow and evolve. — Get Involved. — If you believe that you have an idea that fits the above criteria, please let us know in our forum 🔗 We a...

Analyst Says 'Only A Matter Of Time' Before Bitcoin Flies Past ATH

    An analyst explained how Bitcoin's availability for trading has quietly declined during the asset's recent consolidation phase. Bitcoin May Be In A Good Position To Set New All-Time Highs In a new post on X, analyst Willy Woo discusses the recent trend in the Bitcoin inventory sitting on centralized exchange platforms. The chart below shows how the spot and paper BTC reserves have changed over the past few years. As the graph shows, the Bitcoin sitting in spot wallets has been declining over the last couple of months. The total amount of such BTC in the custody of central entities has now dropped to just 2.3 million. It's also apparent that the total sum of the spot and 'paper' BTC (highlighted in purple) has declined at the same time. Paper BTC here refers to derivatives products related to cryptocurrency that don't actually require investors to own the asset. Thus, given that the combined sum of the exchange inventory has gone down for the cryptocurrency, it would appear that the decrease in the spot BTC isn't because paper BTC has replaced it. Generally, the supply of exchanges is considered part of the Bitcoin supply, which is 'available' for trading. As such, due to how supply-demand dynamics work, less of this available supply may be a constructive sign for the cryptocurrency. From the graph, it's visible that this decline in the exchange inventory has come during a period where the price of the cryptocurrency has struggled after setting a new all-time high (ATH)... read More

Why Zero Flows for Spot Bitcoin ETFs Don't Really Matter

    Preliminary data from Farside Investors revealed that four of the new spot Bitcoin ETFs had another day of zero flows on April 16. These were Bitwise (BITB), Invesco Galaxy (BTCO), WisdomTree (BTCW), and Hashdex (DEFI). Additionally, Grayscale’s GBTC and ARK 21Shares’ ARKB had outflows of $79.4 million and $12.9 million respectively. Nevertheless, Bloomberg ETF analyst James Seyffart said this was perfectly normal. To all those people emailing us, saying we have a bug, because that many flows cannot be zero and its too much of a coincidence. See this thread from @JSeyff Bitcoiners clearly do not understand ETFs, we are so early... — Farside Investors (@FarsideUK) April 16, 2024 Why Zeros Don’t Matter On April 16, Seyffart said that on any given day, the vast majority of ETFs will have a flow number of zero, adding that “this is very normal.” He said that there are around 3,500 ETFs in the US, and on April 15, 2,903 of them had a flow of exactly zero. Moreover, nine of the newly launched eleven spot Bitcoin ETFs, including Fidelity (FBTC), had a flow of zero that day. He explained that shares are produced or destroyed in creation units, which only happens when there is a mismatch in supply and demand. “That mismatch has to be large enough to justify tapping the underlying market,” and a bigger mismatch than a creation unit, he added. Moreover, creation units are the lots that ETF shares are created and r... read More

Bitcoin (BTC) Price at $100K Is a Matter of When Not If, Says Adam Back

    Adam Back, a British cryptographer and co-founder of blockchain tech company Blockstream, believes Bitcoin (BTC) reaching $100,000 is way overdue and a matter of when, not if. According to a Thursday tweet by the famous Bitcoin proponent, there is little market euphoria as the leading digital asset records $1,000-$5,000 green candles because the community expects a $100,000 all-time high (ATH) soon. BTC at $100K Way Overdue Within the past month, BTC has recorded more than 46% gains, surpassing a previous ATH of $69,000 set in the last bull run. The cryptocurrency soared past $70,000 earlier this week, exceeding $72,000 and $73,000 on Monday and Wednesday, respectively. Data from CoinMarketCap showed BTC hovering around $73,400 at the time of writing. Back noted that Bitcoin's latest feat received a lackluster reaction from crypto community members. 'No one said anything,' he remarked. The Blockstream CEO thinks the community's reaction was due to a general belief that BTC hitting $100,000 has been overdue for a few years, hence the lack of enthusiasm at the asset's climb to $73,000. 'Just tick tock $100k,' he added. Bitcoin tapped $73k tuesday. No one said anything. Spent much of wednesday above $73k. I think the reason things are muted is that $100k seems way overdue, for a few years now, so there's not much bull market euphoria as the $1-5k green candles scroll by. Just tick tock $100k. — Adam Back (@adam3us) March 14, 2024 Back's Previou... read More

Former SEC Official Warns of the End of Binance — 'It's Only a Mat...

    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s former head of internet enforcement has warned that the newly unsealed Department of Justice (DOJ) filing should 'signal the end of Binance.' Additionally, he noted that the SEC has heightened its legal action against the crypto exchange. 'To me, it’s only a matter of time before the entire Binance plea deal collapses, resulting in additional charges for Binance, additional charges for CZ, and new charges against anyone else,' he stressed.'It's Only a Matter of Time Before the Entire Binance Plea Deal Collapses' Former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) official John Reed Stark shared his predictions regarding crypto exchange Binance in a lengthy post on social media platform X Saturday. Stark is currently president of cybersecurity firm John Reed Stark Consulting. He founded and served as chief of the SEC Office of Internet Enforcement for 11 years. He was also an SEC enforcement attorney for 15 years. The ex-SEC official outlined two key developments in the Binance settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Firstly, he explained that there has been 'a flurry of newly released Binance-related filings' made by DOJ, which 'have shined glaring sunlight upon the extensive, robust and vigorous oversight that DOJ now enjoys over Binance.' Asserting that the 'newly unsealed U.S. DOJ filings could signal the end of Binance,' Stark opined: The exhaustive list of Binance’s new compliance commitments ... read More

Why Inflation Could Matter More than the SEC or the Halving to Bitcoin's...

    Inflation slowed in October but still came in hot at 3.2%. At the November FOMC meeting, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said the central bank's fight against inflation is far from over. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Labor's Consumer Price Index print for November rose 3.2% for the trailing 12-month period when seasonally adjusted. Not seasonally adjusted, the CPI carried over from October unchanged. Sticky Inflation: A Bitcoin Price Tailwind The slight cooldown in consumer prices could give Bitcoin a lift after a week that's seeing a slowdown in corporate and large investor demand. Cooling inflation could bolster Bitcoin in the short term because some market participants may be willing to go more risk-on. But in the long run, the faster the U.S. dollar supply grows, the more dollars Bitcoin's limited supply can command at an exchange. That's one of the features built into the deflationary blockchain currency by design. Since its inception, Bitcoin has been a strong hedge for central bank currency inflation. A Jefferies analyst recently noted that Bitcoin is a 'critical hedge' against currency debasement. So, for close watchers of Bitcoin's price on crypto exchange markets, the rate of U.S. dollar inflation is critical to keep in view. Fed Fixing to Cut Rates, Boost Inflation Fed watchers are expecting the central bank to pivot hard next year from the current hawkish interest rate regime. Lower interest rates would help soften the landing for GDP, which appears headed for a reces... read More

Expert Market Analysts Agree A Spot Bitcoin ETF Is A Matter Of When, Not...

    The crypto community has been kept at the edge of its seat as the SEC decided to postpone a decision on the 7 Spot Bitcoin ETFs filed over the last few months. During such a pensive time, market analysts have predicted the SEC authorizing a Spot Bitcoin ETF while the former SEC Chairman foresees a losing battle for the regulator.  JP Morgan Analysts Foresee ETFs Approval The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Grayscale, an American digital currency investing and crypto asset management company have been embroiled in a legal battle since June 2022.  The SEC had previously rejected Grayscale’s request to convert its GBTC vehicle to an ETF. The digital currency investment company had responded to the rejection with a lawsuit, suing the SEC and filing a petition for a review by the United States Court of Appeal for the District of Columbia Circuit.  The legal proceedings have not been favorable with the SEC, and analysts led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou from JP Morgan, a New York-based universal bank have predicted the eventual acceptance of Bitcoin ETF applications by the SEC.  The prediction is also largely supported by Grayscale’s victory against the SEC in a recent court ruling that classified the SEC’s denial of Bitcoin ETF applications as unreasonable and without substance, mandating the SEC to reevaluate its decision to deny Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF application. While the SEC deliberates on its next move, th... read More

Matter Labs Refutes Plagiarizing Code Amidst Ongoing Spat With Polygon

    zkSync creator and Matter Labs CEO Alex Gluchowski refuted allegations of plagiarizing code without appropriately crediting zero-knowledge scaling firm Polygon Zero. Gluchowski called the accusations 'unfounded, misleading, and extremely disappointing' from a team the exec 'highly respects.' The comments are in response to Polygon Zero's lengthy blog post accusing the developers of Matter Labs of copy-pasting 'a substantial amount of source code' from performance-critical components of the Plonky2 library. Matter Labs' Feud With Polygon Zero Polygon claimed that Matter Labs' recent release, Boojum, integrated certain code from Plonky2, a zero-knowledge technology created by Polygon. While the Plonky2 platform is open-source, Polygon raised concerns about Matter Labs' failure to include the code in Boojum without original copyrights or clear attribution to the original authors. In addition to the 'directly copied code,' Polygon claimed that Boojum is extremely similar to Plonky2, highlighting the use of the same strategy of parallel repetition to foster soundness in a small field, similar custom gates to efficiently arithmetic recursive verification, as well as the same lookup argument developed by the scaling firm's teammate Ulrich Haböck. 'To add insult to injury, the founder of Matter Labs claimed that Boojum is more than 10x faster than Plonky2. Wondering how this is possible, given that the performance-critical field arithmetic code is directly copied from Plonky2? Y... read More

Ripple's Chief Legal Officer Breaks Down Ruling in SEC Lawsuit — S...

    Ripple Labs' chief legal officer has broken down Thursday's ruling on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) v. Ripple case. Emphasizing that the landmark ruling is 'a huge win' for the crypto firm, he stressed that 'as a matter of law – XRP is not a security.' In addition, he noted that crypto sales on exchanges are also not securities.Ripple Lawyer on SEC v Ripple Case Ruling Ripple Labs' chief legal officer, Stuart Alderoty, explained the ruling in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) v. Ripple case in a series of tweets on Thursday. The lawyer wrote: A huge win today - as a matter of law - XRP is not a security. Also a matter of law - sales on exchanges are not securities. Sales by executives are not securities. Other XRP distributions - to developers, to charities, to employees are not securities. 'The only thing the court found constitutes an investment contract is past direct XRP sales to institutional clients. There will be further court proceedings only on these institutional sales per the court's order,' Alderoty added. The Ripple chief legal officer stressed: The judge's decision affirms so much of what this industry is fighting for, and shows that the SEC does not have unbounded jurisdiction over crypto … Maybe we can now start a rational conversation about crypto regulation in this country. In a statement to Fox Business regarding the ruling, the SEC wrote: 'We are pleased that the court found that XRP tokens were offered and... read More

Bitcoin Wins No Matter What the Fed Does: Arthur Hayes

    Will the Federal Reserve stop raising interest rates next month? For Bitcoin investors, the answer may not actually matter.  According to BitMEX co-founder Arthur Hayes, Bitcoin’s price and inflation will rise in tandem precisely because of hawkish central bank policy – contrary to what modern monetary theory would suggest.  How Rising Rates Will Increase Inflation In a Thursday blog post titled “Patience is Beautiful,” Hayes outlined why the economy’s ever-expanding debt-to-GDP ratio will cause traditional economic “laws” to “break down.” This includes the idea that rising interest rates cause the money supply and inflation to fall. He writes: “Regardless of which path the Fed chooses, be it to hike or cut rates, they will accelerate inflation and catalyze a general rush for the exits from the parasitic fiat monetary financial system.” Data from US Debt Clock shows that the United States government is currently $31.8 trillion in debt. That’s a far cry from the nation’s $26.4 trillion GDP and its relatively meager $4.6 trillion yearly tax revenue.  President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy recently unveiled a draft bill to avert an incoming debt crisis after the nation reached its $31.4 trillion debt limit in January. The deal would suspend the debt ceiling entirely until 2025, but require a number of cost-cutting measures to ensure it doesn’t spiral out of hand until... read More

The Race for Bitcoin Is A Matter of National Security (Opinion)

    Financial markets for everything, including crypto, remain on pause as we mark off the first week of 2023. At this time of global economic uncertainty, people are holding their cash close. Here's why it'll be increasingly important for governments to hold their Bitcoin close. Bitcoin's price barely budged after the release of the latest jobs report. It moved less than a percent, holding above $16,900 as the job data suggested more rate hikes. Bitcoin Is Poised To Become The World's 'Primary Monetary Good' Let's set aside investors' woes over the crypto price winter for a moment and consider the reality of Bitcoin in 2023. People used to question whether the cryptocurrency was even here to stay. Now, successful investors and even banking giants have acknowledged its merits. Fidelity Investments not only considers Bitcoin a more secure and resilient cryptocurrency than most of its peers, but its report states the bank's opinion that BTC has the characteristics and positioning to become the world's 'primary monetary good.' Not only is Bitcoin here to stay, but it will underpin more global reserves as the decade goes on. That poses serious concerns and opportunities for U.S. national security and for that of all major world powers in the international hegemony. National Security Stake in Joining The Bitcoin Race We're near an important inflection point in Bitcoin's history. 14 years into the grand experiment, it is now understood by technical professionals and industry investors ... read More

Joe Biden To Push For Crypto Regulations as a Matter of National Securit...

    Joe Biden's administration wants to clarify once and for all the regulatory landscape surrounding the crypto sphere —taking the opportunity to exert greater control over the industry. Apparently, within the next few weeks, it is expected that the White House will issue an executive order declaring the regulation of cryptocurrencies as a matter of national security - which would raise the priority level that different federal agencies would have to assign to their efforts to monitor the crypto ecosystem. A Holistic Vision According to a report by Barron's, the national security memorandum would essentially seek to achieve coordination among all branches of the government so as to distinguish and limit the competencies of each of the entities involved. Currently, there are conflicting opinions on several aspects inherent to the cryptocurrency industry and the use of cryptocurrencies in transactions. The IRS, CFTC, SEC, and OCC have issued numerous statements affecting the crypto industry. On several occasions, even law enforcement agencies have worked separately on very similar agendas - such as trying to crack privacy cryptocurrencies. An anonymous source told Barron's that Biden and his advisers want to achieve the unity of thought that previous administrations had failed to accomplish: 'This is designed to look holistically at digital assets and develop a set of policies that give coherency to what the government is trying to do in this space,' The State Department, Tr... read More
